Updated Most Funtastic Thing Thing To Happen Ever.

My Civic will not shift into first or second gear. The clutch offers zero resistance when you push against it, and sticks in the “floored” position for a few seconds before popping back. The worst case scenario here is that the transmission is pooched, in which case we will be parking the car until we can sell it for parts, because a NEW transmission is $4000. A new “used” transmission is upwards of $1500, which is about $1450 more than I have at the time of this blog post. Bryan and I reacted to the current transportation situation by arranging for a rental car for the next few days, and then drinking 3/4 of a bottle of red wine (me) and 1/2 a bottle of vodka, in Caesar form (him).

On a happier note, here is a picture of my car with a mustache, which was entirely created by nature, and in no way shaped by my teeny hands. Swear to god. I was actually late for work because I felt compelled to snap pictures of it with my Jack.
